Hi I am one of the experts here on Just Answer.comNow to as far as exporting your contacts from outlook one option would be to make a new Contact List in Outlook 2007
Once you make this new contact list copy only the contacts you want to import to MadMimi account in to it
You appear to be offline so I will switch to a Q&A format
Once you have the new contact list which I would suggest naming MadMimi in outlook 2007 with all the contacts you want to import into madmimi do the following
Click Import Export Wizard
Select Export to a File
On the next screen select Comma Separated Values (or CSV)
Select the contact list you want to export
Select the location you want to save the file
Now you then go to MadMimi and click the Add button from the Audience page.
Next, click Import CSV
Browse to the CSV file you just created.
After selecting it, click Save and you should be all set
Let me know if you have any issues with this
There is no simple way to export just a set of contacts out of a contact list , you can always do an export all the open the CSV file in EXCEL and delete out the contacts you don't want. But again this isn't exactly a quick process depending on the number being imported and the number of contacts which in your case is 900
As you were gearing those towards then importing it into MadMini I used the suggestion above.
How many contacts is it exactly that you are looking to export to MadMini?
When you say spread into 3 or 4 distribution lists
Do you mean a distribution list inside you contacts
Or Do you mean an actual separate contact ls it?
Just want to make sure we are talking about the same thing
Now if its a distribution list you have setup in side your contacts list in outlook try the following This should work and let me know if you have any questions about it.
Open your Outlook, click Distribution List you are trying to export.
And click File, Save As...
On the Save As window, select Text Only (*.txt) in the Save As Type drop down on the bottom.
Open Excel and Open the saved file above. Make sure its set to all files so you can see the text file
When you select the file from previous step, you will be automatically redirected to Text Import Wizard.
You can keep the default value, but on Step 1 of 3 screen, please make sure you select the right Start import at row:. Since the default value of 1 is apparently not what you want with something like "Distribution List Name: ...." occupy at least 4 rows. So you can find the first row with email address and put the row number (on the left) in the Start import at row: number field.
When you continue with "Next" clicking, you just review the screen and make sure everything is what you want, and click Finish in the last step.
And your file will be opened in Excel successfully.
In Excel, click File, Save As and on the Save As window, make sure you change the Save as Type as CSV like the screen below.
Name your file and save it this csv file should be setup for you to import into madMini now do this for each of your distribution lists.
